nice things people have said about me
(Some with exclamation points!)
Here are some quotes from LinkedIn and recommendation letters from people willing to go on the record. Please note that all of these folks are way smarter than me and I’m lucky to have learned and been mentored by them.
“Maresa’s professional demeanor, strategic mindset and high level organization and communication skills are matched by a fun, friendly and creative personality. I have always enjoyed working with and for Maresa because she always has her eye on the ball and elevates those around her.”
“Maresa is one of those rare people who can be vastly creative and handle complexity at the same time. As long as I’ve known Maresa, she has championed New Mexican creativity and has worked with brands to bring more awareness to the artists, cultures and places that make this an enchanted land. She brings energy, thoughtfulness and dedication to any project fortunate enough to collaborate with her.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Maresa for over a year (with Heritage Hotels). During this time, Maresa has done an amazing job with her creative talent which has elevated the quality of the company’s “look and feel”. She is someone who always follows through and is an absolute pleasure to work with. I am lucky to have Maresa as part of my team!”
“Maresa is truly a marketing genius. She is creative, detailed, passionate, and has an eye for artistic expression that is truly impressive. She is also a lot of fun to have on a dynamic team. Maresa is also very willing to speak her mind and fight for what she believes is right. She is loyal, energetic, and delivers excellence. I am so thankful she is part of my team!”
“Maresa is a wonderful fusion of traditional marketing skills blended with savvy in the new technologies and advertising vehicles for the modern marketing director. She combines enthusiasm with extraordinary talent to achieve amazing results and produce award-winning art and content. She is a genuine mover and shaker who has a unique ability to provide a comfortable space for fellow creatives to excel.”
“Maresa’s enthusiasm and talent have contributed greatly to the innovative and successful marketing of Heritage Hotels & Resorts, Inc. She takes pride in the day-to-day tasks; she has a tenacious attitude about all projects assigned to her. Her professionalism and integrity earn her the respect of all those who have the opportunity to work with or for her.”
“Maresa is my PR firm’s Heritage Hotels/Hotel Chaco client. We also worked with Maresa for many years when we handled the public relations for the State of New Mexico. She is a masterful media relations professional. We always know journalists are in terrific hands with Maresa and she leaves no stone unturned to help them get their stories while delivering great results for Heritage. She is also one of the hardest working, goal-oriented executives I have encountered in my career.”
